TROPICAL CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

TROPICAL CULTIVATION. The Cocoanut Tree (Cocus nucifero) be- longs to the class Monocia, order Hex andria of the Linnean ' classification of plants. This tree is one of the greatest blessings that a bountifnl Creator has bestowed on the swarthy children of the tropics; amongst the vast and almost innumerable productions of these regions there are none that are regarded with more love, veneration, and almost worship. To a native of these climates the name recalls to memory a home of sunny skies, beautiful landscapes, with bays bearing the tint of heaven's own blue encircled with glistening shores, fringed with this beautiful and useful tree, furnishing to him, with little labor, dwelling, clothing, cordage, hammocks, nets for fishing, drinking cups, lamps, oil for light and also culinary purposes, food from the jelly, and drink, either from the delicious cooling milk of the young nut, or, the fiery and intoxicating arrack extracted from the stem. That this valuable tree can be grown ...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1864. TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

WEST AUSTRALIAN TIMES DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1864. TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. WE have to announce that ar- rangements have just been com- pleted for the amalgamation of the W. A. Times with the Perth Gazette, which latter Journal will, from and after the 7th October next, be issued in a large sheet, of the size of the Inquirer, and be carried on upon inde- pendent principles, advocating, on all occasions, the true in- terests of the Colony. THE self-stultifying resolution of the Victorian Government to withdraw its annual contribution in aid of the postal communication with England, unless the P. & O. Company will bind themselves not to touch at Sing George's Sound, or elsewhere in Western Australia, is only another proof of the unfitness of men for real statesmanship who have not been carefully trained and educated for so high a service. Most Scotchmen consider themselves, by virtue of their birthright, ready qualified for everything t...

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) SINCE your last issue nothing particular has transpired at the Port, in fact the last week   has proved very unfruitful in topics of general interest, but " I give thee all-I can no more." In my last I informed you of the arrival of the ship Merchantman on the 13th instant. Our harbour previous to that date was entirely devoid of shipping, but I have now to report the arrival of the following vessels-Kestrel, Europa, and David and Jessie. The Zephyr has also crossed over from Garden Island. These numerous arrivals have given our anchorage   a more lively and mercantile appearance than it has,worn for some months past. The Europa, which vessel has replaced the Gem, as a regular trader between here and Adelaide, is a fine craft, and a great improve- ment upon the other vessel. The Favourite and Mystery sailed on Friday, the former for Champion Bay, and the latter for the DeGrey River, having on board the illustrious sa...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

©J* ê$w Mumu. To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-It will be in the recollection of many of your readers that on the 29th August the town of Fremantle was thrown into a state of excite- ment by the report that a party of the chain gang had made an attempt to escape, which was happily frustrated by the prompt arrival, &c, &c, and so ended the matter for that time; but how are we to know, without prophetic prescience, when the like attempt is to be again made, with a different result? I can assure you I would not have trespassed upon your time and space but that I have waited patiently for three weeks and I see no indica- tions of arrangements being made to prevent such a catastrophe for the future. That His Excellency Governor Hampton has not declined in energy with his years, his ad- ministration of the Government since his arrival amongst us has fully proved, but it appears to me just possible that he devotes more of his attention to the saving of a few pounds in...

NOTICES OF NEW BOOKS. Our Mutual Friend. By Charles Dickens. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

NOTICES OF NEW BOOKS. Our Mutual Friend. By Charles Dickens. No. 3. The ninth chapter is at length reached, and the personage answering to the designation of " Our Mutual Friend," is disclosed. This is one Mr. Rokesmith, a mysterious man, a lodger in the house of Mr. Wilfer, whose daughter, Bella, was betrothed to the murdered heir of the wealthy dustman. It does not appear in what way his friendship will be exercised; but it is likely enough he will prove to be the murderer, for whose discovery and apprehension the honest foreman of the dust-yard (who has come into possession of the money) offers the munificent sum of ten thousand pounds. This highly   generous person, who appears to be op- pressed by his good fortune, proposes   doing all sorts of romantic things; he casts about for an orphan boy to adopt : and offers a home in his house to the be- reaved young lady ; moreover, he seems likely to adopt the proposal of Mr. Roke- smith, to employ him as sec...

PRESENT STATE OF AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

PRESENT STATE OF AUCKLAND. Auckland, whatever may be its other advan- tages, cannot boast much of its architectural features. Colonel Mundy, in his entertaining book, gives some amusing details; and a sketch in the Southern Cross, just to hand, shows that matters have not improved in the interval, though there is hope of better things in future: "Even a wooden town-a city of pill-boxes may present the attractive feature of some dis- play of taste, some provision for the convenience of its inhabitants. Not So with Auckland. We havobeen so content with the utile that we have been content to put the dulce into our pocket until better times. Our public buildings have been fairly represented by the architectural beauties of St. Paul's and St. Andrew's churches, and by that tasteful edifice in which our Pro- vincial Council holds its sittings ; and a fair example of our private ones may be seen any day on the west side of Queen-street, from the junction of west Queen-street in a southerly...

Victoria Plains. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

Victoiña Plains. (From a Correspondent.) The escaped convict Lomas has paid this district a visit ; he went to a man at Dandara- gan, and represented himself as foot-sore and hungry; the man, not knowing who he was, made him welcome to what he could spare, and left Lomas at his hut whilst he went out. Lomas, taking advantage of his absence, robbed the hut of arms, ammunition, and pro- visions, and then took to the bush. The district constable, happening to be going his rounds, arrived at Dandaragan the day after the robbery, but being unable to obtain a native, and being unprovided with one by Government, he was unable to track Lomas. The constable has authority to hire a native and horse when he¡ deems fit, but in this instance (as it may be in others till the autho ' rities provide this district with a regular mounted native constable) no native was obtainable ; consequently, this dangerous cha- racter, Lomas, is now roaming about the bush, with firearms in his possession.

THE GREAT METROPOLITAN HORSE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 September 1864

'¿"^^THE GREAT METROPOLITAN HORSE SHOW. This exhibition, which has been the great "sensation" event amongst the inhabitants of the metropolis, especially of the upper and middle classes, during the first three days of the past, and the two last days of the week preceding, has proved in every point of view such a decided success that we have no hesita- tion in reiterating the opinion expressed by The Observer last week, that the " Horse Show," following in the wake of the " Christmas Cattle Show," will be- come a permanent annual institution. Not only has the great gathering of very superior horse-flesh at the Agricul- tural Hall already established its claims to support, by reason of the advantages which it is calculated to produce in the perfection of various breeds, but the vast amusement afforded, and deep interest generally attaching to the show, has secured for it such an amount of patron- age that it will be repeated annually at the same period of the year.

®>\t ®0*it Calumn. To ras EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-You will oblige by inserting, in the next number of your journal, the fol- lowing lines : In your issue of last week, commenting upon some circumstance connected with the burial of a child at Bunbury, you say of the Roman Clergyman, " who no doubt claims the approbation of his superiors for having leit ' the dead to bury their dead.' He may receive their secret ap- proval." I am able to declare that these statements have no foundation whatever, for the priest thought he did his duty, and therefore he claimed not the appro- bation of his superiors; he showed no bigotry, for he objected not to the wishes of the parents of the child, who requested that the remains of the child should be carried by Protestant girls, and that the Sacristan should have nothing to do at the funeral service. When the bell of the Protestant Church was being tolled, somebody told the priest that the funeral procession was going to the Protestant cem...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] Holhway's Ointment and Pill*.-For bad legs, bad breasts and scorbutic or scrofulous sores, this is a genuine specific. The grateful and earnest testimony of thousands who have experienced their unrivalled power over these complaints, and who have been raised from prostrate helplessness and a condition loath- some to themselves and others, renders it quite unnecessary to enlarge in this place upon its extraordinary virtues. The parts affected should be bathed with luke-warm water, and .when the pores are thereby opened the Oint- ment should be rubbed in at least twice a day all round the complaining parts. It then penetrates to the seat of the disorder, and effects, a thorough and permanent cure. These preparations are composed of rare balsams, as mild as they are efficacious. B Bills of lading.

THE ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 September 1864

THE ALABAMA. The following letter from the captain of the Kearsarge is published in the Daily News :- " SIR : There has been so many non- sensical publications on the engagement which took place between the Alabama and the Kearsarge that it is my wish that a correction should be made. " In the first place, no challenge was sent by Captain Winslow; to have done   so would have been to have violated the order of the Navy Department. On the contrary, Captain Winslow received a request from Captain Semmes not to leave, as he would fight the Kearsarge, and would only occupy a day or two in his preparations. Five days, however, elapsed before they were completed. The Kearsarge's battery consists of seven guns, two 11-inch Dahlgrens, four 32-pounders, one light rifle 28-pounder. The battery of the Alabama consisted of one 100-pounder rifle, one heavy 68 ditto, six 32-pounders - that is, one more gun than the Kearsarge. In the wake of the engines on the outside the Kearsarge ha...

Times, the latter will, from this date, become merged in the older journal, and the pair thus united will in future, it is confidently hoped, pass merrily down the stream of Time, under the title of the Perth Gazette and W.

By thus uniting their fortunes, they will be able to appear before the world on a scale of magnitude, which, whilst in the state of single blessedness, they scarcely ventured to anticipate. Mutual friends will no longer feel embarrassed as to which they shall favour with their ad- vertisements. Inspired with the happy consciousness that they are no longer called to advertise in both, they will cultivate the advertising spirit within them to the fullest extent, and pour f...

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.)

By the former vessel, it is reported that Myers has left our shores ; your readers will, doubtless, remember that Myers is bound over in the sum of ¿2500 to appear at the next Sessions, in con- nection with a robbery at Champion Bay. I read with great pleasure and satisfaction the letter of your correspondent, "A Soldier from Tasmania," published in last week's issue. I can assure you he is not singular in experiencing the feelings which prompted his remarks. I cannot think there is much wis- dom in attempting to awe a body of reckless men, aB most of those comprising the chain gang have proved themselves to be, with the small and inefficient pensioner guard now on duty over them ; ...
